I tried keeping it as simple as possible, and worked the best I could to make the grain complimentary, and this is what I have been able to come up with. What you see here will NOT be what is all visible above ground. Remember I have dot have something sunk into the concrete footer right? The design is pretty simple. Cross built from double layer cedar 2×4s, 12” wide x 24” tall (above ground). The edges are all relieved with my 1/2” 22.5 degree chamfer bit. I thought...
In this episode I cut the dados on the sides for the 4 shelves. Then I cut the 1 in strips that are going to be on the back of each shelf to stop shoes from going over the back.
Recently I built and I’m now painting my SawStop and Router Cabinet. Some LJs asked about how I was able to avoid having a hose jet out from the back of my router fence to control the dust above the table here are some pictures of how I directed the dust from the top of the table down into the rear of my two-chamber router box and then out the back of my cabinet. I hope these pictures show you my idea around this. I hope this helps to those who wanted to know. Here’s a link ...
I had some fun with this one, it still needs a bit of tweaking, need to add some details and adjust some dimensions, but I thought I’d throw it up to share until I have time to go back over it. I combined a pretty standard style Router cabinet from an issue of Wood magazine, with a Miter Saw cart from Fine Woodworking, and plopped them both onto a mobile base from another issue of Wood. The Miter Saw station has a flip up, extendable wing on the left side, and on the right side the ...
Hello, OK, I figured out the picture thing. Most of the photos are cropped off on the right side (as the instructions said they would be). Next time I will take this into account when taking the pics…..... Just wanted to post a quick blog to show a new jig that I have built to cut spline slots for a Greene and Greene table top (i.e. the bread-board ends). I have seen a few ways to do this here on this site and other places (thanks to all LumberJocks for all of the great ideas I ha...
Progress is accepting what was once the goal, as common place, seeing the new goal as within reach. -Aki Haruki, world renowned sharpening monk. I am not afraid to reference a blog post from my first week! Nor am I afraid to strive for greater accuracy in my cuts. After sanding the 2×4s to within 2.54 centimeters of their life, I made my marks and cut four friendly nineteen inch pieces. Though I am much better at using my Japanese hand saw, I am no ‘Aki Haruki’, mostly beca...
I thought today was going to be a great day, I had a babysitter, a project to do for my wife’s workplace, and the shop temp. was about 70, perfect day right? Well I went out about 8 a.m., about 8:30 I broke my first bandsw blade ever resawing. i went to the woodsmith shop and bought a new blade, jet bearing guides, and new tires, still determined to make the best of things I got the bandsaw up and going, finished resawing and dementioning my lumber and it was off to dovetails, everythin...
Well, after taking all my rough cut boards and ripping them to final width and crosscutting them to final length on the tablesaw, and spending what seemed like hours (because it probably was) laying out all the cuts on all the pieces … I fired up my new mortising router jig … And cut my first mortises in all the stiles of the chest! I then went over to the tablesaw with a Dado head and started to mill my 1st tenons and all the grooves for the solid panels: Things went ...
G’day everyone, I really would like to thank everyone that posted a comment on my very first blog. I was really overwhelmed by the response of friendship and good hearted people that offered to help me if I needed it which was displayed on Lumberjocks community. I also wanted thank Svaabeck for helping me get my finger out. I am sorry it has taken so long to post another entry but I was taken in by woodworking, once I received my Incra gear and had set it up I got sucked into it. I unders...
